I'm a big AH person who mails all my stuff to an AH toon, and I have 50-60 auctions going at any one time.
I have bugsack and I have enough mods that I do get the occasional "fatality" error message upon login and recently when using bulkmail2inbox "get all" function.
I always thought deep down that there is NO WAY a mailbox mod would allow the deletion of mail (items, gold) without double and triple checking to make sure the item was received.
There was a couple weeks when I was scratching my head as my gold wasn't going up like it normally has been ... so, on one particularly good auction day, I made note of my gold and blindly clicked the bulkmail2inbox button ... i got some lua errors (taken care of by bugsack) with the little "fatality" sound ... and sure enough at the end, about 50 of the 400 gold I had ended up in my bag. The other 350? Gone.
So suddenly, I had the sickening feeling ... "how much gold, how many items has bulkmail2inbox" eaten?
I know, I'm stupid for blindly trusting any mod, especially when it has potential lua errors, but, damn.
Has anyone seen this? Is there code in bulkmail2inbox for checking and double checking auctions?
At the time (I immediately deleted bulkmail2 and bulkmail2inbox) and have been painfully doing it all by hand. It's painful enough to need to look for a mail mod.
Bulkmail2 and bulkmail2inbox have the features I love, it's well thought out and displayed on the screen ... of course, except for the "eating 100s if not 1000s of my gold" part.
Does anyone have similar experiences? Does anyone recommend this or other mods? Anything?
BulkMail2 & BulkMail2Inbox have not been updated since last year. There have been WoW patches since then; chances are high that the mods need updating to work reliably in WoW 2.4.x (the current patch). And chances are low that that will happen soon.
For an alternative, Postal is currently maintained for WoW 2.4.2 and works reliably. Have had issues with it over time in the past (never lost mail that I can remember), but its reliable currently.
Express Mail Express Mail is a very simple addon, it allows for quick opening of mail by shift-clicking in your inbox. On shift-click it will take any cash and items, or delete an entry if it only contains text. EM will never accept COD items, you must do this manually. Priority Mail:PriorityMail is a simple mail sending addon designed to complement ExpressMail. It provides three simple features that should make mass-mailing simple: auto-fill of the last recipient, alt-clicking items in your bag to attach and send immediately, and auto-send on 12 attachments.
I use those 2. :) Yes, they don't show how much gold you picked up through mail, but they're light, and do what they say to be doing.
I use Postal. Like ExpressMail, it has shift-click to open a mail, will pick up coins and items, and delete messages that contain no coins, items, or text, and skip messages with COD attachments. Unlike ExpressMail, it also has an "open all" button to process your entire inbox at once. It also includes the features MoonWitch mentions as being part of PriorityMail. Postal also tells you how much gold you picked up in total, and can print out a line for each item it picks up too.
